Great article but you missed hands down the best play place in Winnipeg--Hide and Seek (hideandseekwinnipeg.com). It's located in the same area as the Sky Zone near Fort Whyte but it's soooo much better. I took my kids there Jan 2 along with my cousins' kids and they had a blast. After 6 hours, they still didn't want to leave. I'm from California but grew up in Winnipeg, my extended family lives in Winnipeg, and I visit almost every year and we've been to Great Big Adventure, Children's Museum, and Skyzone. But Hide and Seek is simply the best... even compared to anywhere we've been to in California. Seriously. That's saying something. Check it out and amend your article to include it. Or don't. next time we're in Winnipeg, would hate to fight the crowds :)
This is a great list to keep the kids active. See me having indoor playground fun here https://www.ezistreet.com/fun-kids-indoor-playg...
